Rapper Papoose is well known for his lyricism and a artist who caught people attention in the 2000s.
The New York rapper spoke with VladTV about signing with Jive records and how it was the worse decision of his life.
“Despite his buzz as an underground artist, Papoose said the industry tried to ignore him even with the Kay Slay cosign. The rapper pointed out that he didn’t get a record deal until 2007 even though he met DJ Kay Slay three years prior. Papoose also described how he ended up signing a $1.5 million deal with Jive Records shortly before joining Busta Rhymes’ Flipmode Squad. He explained that DJ Kay Slay and Busta Rhymes entered a joint venture in order to collectively push Papoose’s career. Papoose sparked a bidding war among labels before the “Touch It (Remix)” raised his profile,” per VladTV.
Hip Hop and the music business are two different animals where one deals with the control of how an artist is market in contrast to an artist having a passion for music.
Although Papoose didn’t have a legendary music career, his fans will appreciate his music.
